The Hilton Hawaiian Village surrounding the Grand Waikikian is brimming with activities for guests to enjoy.

Gardens can be a place for relaxation, while guests looking for action can head for the beach and try different water sports such as kayaking, aquacycling, snorkeling, and surfing.
Guests can also take their marine adventure to the next level by riding in one of the Atlas submarines, which will take them on an up-close and personal undersea tour. Atlas submarines depart from Hilton Hawaiian Village. Lessons on different Polynesian arts, such as dancing, lei-making, and playing the ukelele, are offered exclusively to guests at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.
Dining is also no problem for guests at the Grand Waikikian. The Hilton Hawaiian Village has a variety of dining choices, which serve cuisine from all over the world. Try Bali by the Sea for an elegant Oceanside dinner, or Rainbow Lanai for a more casual, beachside ambiance. There are also Japanese restaurants such as Hanajuban, Benihana and Hatsuhana, while Sergio’s and Round Table Pizza serve delectable Italian cuisine.
If that isn’t enough, guests can also visit nearby sites. 2100 Kalakua Avenue carries some of the most luxurious names in shopping, such as Tiffany, Coach, Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Gucci and Bottega Venetta. Fort DeRussy Park is just a short walk away and has a military recreation area and an American Army museum. There’s also the Ala Moana Center, one of the world’s largest outdoor shopping malls.
